March of the Bone Children

Author Comments

During the witching hours, while the living world sleeps, a leader emerges from the earth. He sounds the horn three times and the bone children rise up and march by moonlight. They march on until a warning blast is sounded, when the bone children scurry beneath the ground to hide as the living world awakes!

Well this sure is something that I'm not used to listen to, but I find it remarkable that you can make a composition like this. I would never make up anything like this!

I can definitely picture this to be in an animated film or a game!

I notice that you made use of giving each instrument a certain place in the "digital" room, but you could've made it definitely more wider, because it sounds a bit as if the members of the orchestraband are still crammed up next to each other.

This isn't usually my cup of tea, but based on the composition and your mix, I'll give it 4 out of 5 stars!

Thanks for the kind words and critique -- I studied classical composition in college, so this kind of composition comes easily to me (though a piece as richly orchestrated as this one did take a long time to make). I think you're correct about the stereo field not being wide enough ... I'll have to experiment with the panning a bit. I did this in Finale and Kontakt/VSL and just used the default settings for the instrument panning ... which may be "accurate" according to the layout of the orchestra, but maybe not exaggerated enough to translate to electronic production. :) I'll experiment with it. Thanks for the suggestion. Can I contact you when I upload the new version and get your opinion on the changes?

Nicely done 5/5
